HOUSE-SMOKED TURKEY FROM SPREADS
New to Flatiron, Spreads has a menu with twists added to common sandwiches. So instead of the same boring turkey you've always had, Spreads' house-smoked turkey has avocado, monterey jack, roasted peppers, spicy chipotle aioli and tortilla chips on a toasted ciabatta. The house-smoked turkey definitely beats any standard Oven Gold/Boar's Head deli meat, but the star of the sandwich is the tortilla chips. I don't know why I've never thought to add tortilla chips to a sandwich before, but that is about to change. The added saltiness of the chips is balanced by the pickled peppers and a spicy-but-not-too-spicy chipotle aioli that's generously slathered on the toasted ciabatta. At $9.50, the sandwich is priced just about right. I will be returning for the smoked salmon/brown sugar bacon sandwich next.
